Stop a runny nose in its tracks

A runny nose can be embarrassing, particularly if you’re caught unaware without a tissue in a public place. It can strike at any time, so make sure you’re prepared with a pocketful of tissues and an effective, fast acting runny nose remedy.

What are the causes of a runny nose?

A runny nose is a nasal discharge that flows from the nasal passages. It’s usually the result of inflammation and swelling around the inner lining of the nasal passages and sinus area. The most common cause of a runny nose is cold and flu, but sinus infection, allergies and hay fever can also be a contributing factor.

What are the symptoms of a runny nose?

Nasal fluid seeping from your nose passages is the main symptom of a runny nose, along with mild inflammation and swelling.

How to relieve a runny nose

Blowing your nose regularly will obviously help with removing any embarrassing nasal discharge. You could also try products with a drying effect, such as an antihistamine, particularly if your runny nose is the result of an allergy.
